FRENCH GO TO THE POLLS – WILL LE PEN BRING ORDER TO CHAOS

borderThe latest from The Daily Telegraph

French election 2017: Marine Le Pen leading the race as polls open

Polls have opened in the first round of France’s most unpredictable and high-stakes presidential election in decades, with far-Right leader Marine Le Pen and the maverick centrist Emmanuel Macron leading the field.Marine Le Pen casts her vote in the first round of voting on Sunday

A Le Pen victory could lead to the collapse of the European Union, experts warn, but after the victory of Donald Trump in the US and the Brexit vote in Britain most agree that there is no safe bet in the French race.

 A last minute surge in the polls has lifted the hopes and aspirations of Marine Le Pen going into today’s elections. Three heavyweights are brawling for the top two spots. Le Pen’s surge is due to the latest shooting in Paris. Just as Obama was the best gun salesman ever known, the Jihadist is the best “get out the vote” for Le Pen. French cuisine is known for its gastric delights, but to swallow an Islamic diet of death is not what the French ordered. Le Pen, leader of the National Front brings to the table the same issues that Trump brought. “Our country is being invaded by foreigners who find it difficult to simulate into our culture, but want us to accept theirs.”

Areas of Paris are “no go zones” suburban ghettos inhabited by Muslim thugs who target outsiders with threats of physical harm.  These banlieues harbor drug dealers, murders and thieves. They have their own mini government. Gendarmes fear to enter these areas. Roché said nothing had changed since 2005 – “neither the police’s policy, nor the very high level of hostility in the poor suburbs” – and warned that any violence could quickly spread. “It spreads from one poor banlieue to another … The fuel is the anger and hostility towards the police forces.”

French politicians are underestimating the level of anger in the country’s troubled banlieues, which risks sparking an explosion of violence, experts have warned.

The alert comes after another night of violence and arrests in several Paris suburbs. Suspects appeared in court on Tuesday on charges of civil disturbances including torching cars and dustbins and attacks on the emergency services.

The unrest erupted after a 22-year-old man, Théo, was allegedly raped during a violent police arrest.

Academics have accused French politicians of failing to deal with the tinderbox conditions in the banlieues or suburban estates, which they say could spark a national wave of riots in the run-up to the presidential elections in April and May.

 

MOHAMMAD STRIKES GAY PARIS

City after city,  Muslim murderers lurk in the shadows, waiting for the call from Allah to strike. “Allahu Akbar” is today’s “Geronimo.”  The call for violence from the Islamic devil triggers the anger within. Devastation and blood, their calling card. And as day follows night Jihad follows serenity. This Champs Elysees was the venue. The killer had spoken about wanting to kill police but had had no apparent link to Islamist radicalism before the attack, prosecutors said. A note defending so-called Islamic State (IS) was found near his body.

MOHAMMED STRIKES AGAIN – THIS TIME STOCKHOLM SWEDEN

Another copy-cat vehicular terrorist attack in Stockholm, Sweden. Who would believe this twenty years ago. Beautiful country, beautiful women and beautiful people. Now Sweden is on the verge of becoming a Muslim asylum country.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said the country has been attacked and everything indicated that this was an act of terrorism. The incident occurred on Drottninggatan (Queen Street), one of the city’s major pedestrian streets. It happened just before 15:00 local time (13:00 GMT).

Shots have also reportedly been fired in another part of the city, says BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner, citing security sources. It is not yet known if the two incidents are connected.

 

Malmo, Sweden, a hotbed of terrorists from Muslim countries.

Scores of Swedes took the streets of Malmo, a southern city in Sweden, on Monday to protest an epidemic of violence that has taken the lives of far too many young people. The last victim was 16-year-old Ahmed Obaid. He was killed last Thursday after an unidentified gunman unleashed a salvo of bullets. “Our kids should sleep well, play at play parks, feel safe,” Housam Abbas, the victim’s cousin, said, according to the Local. Malmo, this once quiet city, is now overrun with violence. The culture of fear is so palpable that parents are no longer comfortable sending their children out to play.

“You have to look over your shoulder when you go out at night now. I don’t let my little brother go out at night any more,” said one high school student at Monday’s protest in front of city hall. “I hope that the politicians actually view this as a serious problem and start to solve this in Malmö.”

After being handed a list of measures to curb the violence in the city, Justice and Migration Minister Morgan Johansson stated in a matter-of-fact tone: “We have to get rid of the weapons, we need tighter punishment so that those who are held for serious gun crime can be arrested immediately and not just be released a few days later.”

What Johansson failed to mention, however, was the fact that the bulk of the violence stems from one community.

The Muslim immigrant community has a crime problem. It’s a truism that Swedish (and European) politicians have denied in bold-faced lies and assurances to the public.

Malmo, like Molenbeek, its sister city in Belgium, has become a breeding ground for criminals.

Thousands of Muslim immigrants have fled their war-torn homes in the Middle East to settle in quaint European cities filled with naïve and welcoming townspeople.

This has been true in France, England, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, and Sweden.

Since the great migration into Europe, crime, largely committed by migrants, has gone up manifold, leaving many to reassess their naïveté about hosting duties.

CRY BABIES AT WORK – UPCHUCK SCHUMER’S FAKE TEARS

 Senate minority leader reached for the Kleenex, wiping away fake tears  leaking from his scheming eyes. We bet the source of the tears derived from an onion stowed away in his lapel pocket.

“I noticed Chuck Schumer yesterday with fake tears,” Trump said during an Oval Office photo op with small-business leaders. “I’m going to ask him who is his acting coach.”

Let us ask why some of those who want to come into the United States have waited two, three, four years? How come Obama did not allow them in, after all Trump has only been here for two weeks. Why all the fuss? Because the Liberal-Progressive wing of the Democrat party has gone rouge, crying, rallying, protesting, this does not change the paradigm. Trump is here to protect us, not protect them.

The main point here is this: there are so many countries in the world, why do these refugees want to come to a country that despises them? They can go to Mexico, Venezuela, Russia and a myriad of others who will accept them with open arms, why here? The answer, for ECONOMIC REASONS.

These people come here to fleece the United States; the war in Syria is over, stay in Damascus, help rebuild Aleppo. BETTER YET GO TO IRAN, they will accept you with open arms.

Trump’s 120 day delay in accepting refugees from seven countries is not a ban on Muslims. Do you get that Democrats? Muslims from the other fifty two countries, including Saudi Arabia are not prevented from coming into the United States. This is not a Muslim ban, this is a country ban.

READ BELOW: AN OPEN LETTER TO UP-CHUCK SCHUMER.

It was quite a weekend for you. When you weren’t wallowing in your 15 minutes of self-induced fame with endless tirades against President Trump and his executive order, you flooded the airwaves with enough Crocodile Tears to fill the Hudson.

If that wasn’t enough you posed with an Islamic version of the Walton family on Sunday — they looked like nothing more than props — to show us how we can teach the world to sing in peaceful harmony.

You referred to President Trump’s executive order, which indefinitely barred Syrian refugees from entering the United States, suspended all refugee admissions for 120 days and blocked citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries, refugees or otherwise, from entering the United States for 90 days: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, as mean-spirited and a moral outrage, yet they bear a resemblance to an executive order issued by President Obama in 2011 and orders issued by the Department of Homeland Security last year.

In 2011, President Obama placed a six-month ban on all refugees from Iraq after a refugee was linked to the deaths of US soldiers in Iraq.

According to a DHS press release, dated, February 18, 2016:

The Secretary of Homeland Security has determined that Libya, Somalia, and Yemen be included as countries of concern, specifically for individuals who have traveled to these countries since March 1, 2011. DHS continues to consult with the Department of State and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to develop further criteria to determine whether other countries would be added to this list. 

Last month, the United States began implementing changes under the Act. The three additional countries designated today join Iran, Iraq, Sudan and Syria as countries subject to restrictions for Visa Waiver Program travel for certain individuals.

Sure sounds like the same countries listed on President Trump’s executive order, doesn’t it, Senator?

Strangely, you, nor your colleagues in dishonesty and deception from the liberal media ever uttered so much as a peep about those orders signed by Mr. Obama and authorized by the DHS.

As you well know, Senator Schumer, the president’s first constitutional duty is to protect the nation from all enemies, foreign and domestic. It is not his duty to bow to the neurotic, loony whims of women on “The View,” naïve, airhead actors at an awards ceremony or the anarchists your party has unleashed once again in big cities across the country.

The examples of terrorists who have infiltrated into the US under the guise of the refugee or visa programs are numerous. Here are just a few examples out of many:

On November 18, 2013, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, Issa Doreh was sentenced to ten years in prison for “conspiracy to provide material support to terrorist, conspiracy to provide material support to foreign terrorist organization, conspiracy to launder monetary instruments, and providing material support to foreign terrorist organization.” Doreh was admitted to the United States as a refugee from Somalia .

On January 31, 2014, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, Ahmed Nasir Taalil Mohamud was sentenced to six years in prison for conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Mohamud was admitted to the United States as a refugee from Somalia.

On April 20, 2015, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota, Abdurahman Yasin Daud, a Somalian refugee was charged (along with six others) with conspiracy and attempt to provide material support to ISIS. 

On February 18, 2015, Al-Hazmah Mohammed Jawad was arrested as he attempted to boarda flight to Jordan to join and fight with ISIS in Iraq. Jawad was admitted to the United States in 2013 as an Iraqi refugee and he subsequently obtained a green card. 

On January 29, 2013, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky, Mohanad Shareef Hammadi was sentenced to life in prison for a number of offenses related to terrorism. Hammadi is a native of Iraq who was admitted to the United States as a refugee in 2009

In 2009, Ramadan Alwan, an al Qaeda-Iraq terrorist living as a refugee in Bowling Green, Kentucky — later admitted in court that they’d attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq. An ABC News investigation of the flawed U.S. refugee screening system, which was overhauled two years ago, showed that the men were mistakenly allowed into the U.S. and resettled in the leafy southern town of Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Sudan was designated as a State Sponsor of Terrorism in 1993 due to concerns about support to international terrorist groups. Elements of al-Qa’ida-inspired terrorist groups remain in Sudan. Groups continue to operate in Sudan and there are frequent reports of Sudanese nationals participating in terrorist organizations.

Iran has been a financier and supporter of international terrorism since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, financing such groups as Hezbollah. Iran was implicated in the 2011 plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the US, Adel al-Jubeir. Iran consistently taunts and threatens the US military in the Persian Gulf.

Libya is a failed state that has become a training ground and recruitment center for ISIS and especially for ISIS members infiltrating into Western Europe under the cover of the EU refugee programs.

The war torn country of Syria is not only a haven for ISIS, but a training ground for future terrorists and ISIS operatives in North America and Western Europe. In a recent interviewwith the UK Express, an ISIS operative boasted that the group has infiltrated 4,000 people into Western Europe under the guise of posing as refugees.

In fact, one of the gunmen during the Paris attacks in 2015 had a Syrian passport on him when he was killed during the terrorist operation.

In July 2016 Mohammad Daleel, 27, blew himself up outside a wine bar in Ansbach, Germany. Fifteen people were injured. Daleel was a refugee from Syria who had arrived in Germany in 2014 seeking asylum. 

You don’t know who these people are, or where they’re going, or what their motivations are, do you Senator Schumer? How is the government supposed to scrutinize the backgrounds of refugees, when laws prohibit officials from examining the social media pages of those who wish to settle in the USA?

You do know one thing though, Senator Schumer; they will eventually vote Democrat and that’s all that counts, national security be damned.

Liberals claim that the US refugee program is as solid as steel. It’s more than obvious that the US refugee program is another inept federal government operation, a house of cards ready to collapse on the nation.

Mean spirited and a moral outrage Senator?

Mean spirited is a Jihadi firing a couple hundred rounds into innocent men and women in a crowded Paris theater.

Moral outrage is an Al Qaeda operative roaming freely around the US, with a shiny new green card and a carload of C4.

Mean-spirited is a Jihadi driving over people with a semi-truck in downtown Nice.

Moral outrage is a Somali refugee stabbing a dozen people at Ohio State University.

Mean spirited are the constant threats by Iran against the United States.

Moral outrage is a series of ISIS suicide bombs detonating in the Brussels airport, killing 32 innocent civilians.

NO ONE has a constitutional right to be here who is not an American citizen. Those who come here do so at the discretion of the president and the Congress, which represents we the people. You might want to explain that to your shrieking, naïve, delusional fellow Democrats, Senator Schumer.

The president of the United States is the leader of this nation. Like all leaders, he must make decisions that are sometimes unpopular among certain groups, for the greater good of America. Strength is a trait that has all but vanished among liberals and national security is anathema to the left’s obscene world view. It is more than obvious that Democrats are willing to gamble with the lives of the American people in order to be politically correct.

Your actions this past weekend, Senator Schumer, have clearly demonstrated once again that the simplest equation in the world is LIBERALISM = ABSOLUTE WEAKNESS.

Sincerely,

Ray Starmann

Washington State mall massacre committed by Turkish immigrant. A 20-year-old Turkish immigrant was arrested Saturday in the murders of five people in a Washington state shopping mall, authorities said. The Jihad continues against Western Culture and Society.

 

Jordanian writer murdered for insulting ISLAM (a religion of peace).

Jordan writer in blasphemy case Nahid Hattar killed

cr7lpqnxeaa1ezx

Nahid Hattar, a Christian, was hit by three bullets outside the court in the capital Amman where he was standing trial, state news agency Petra said.

(click)Mr Hattar’s killer was arrested and police are investigating the killing, TV reports said.

The writer was detained in August for 15 days on charges of insulting God.

The cartoon he shared depicts a bearded man lying in bed with two women and smoking, asking God to bring him a drink.

Mr Hattar was attacked on social media for being anti-Islam.

He said he had not meant to cause offence and wanted to expose radical Islamists’ view of heaven.

But the authorities said he had broken the law by sharing the cartoon.

Time and time again, Islamic nations have not only proved but certified the vicious nature of their beliefs.

Answers are demanded by today’s lying politicians to the salient question why they believe that Muslims can be integrated into Western societies. It has never been done  in 1500 years. Only an IDIOT believes it possible. 

 

Afghan, who planted bombs in NY and NJ caught red handed. Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, who was described as “armed and dangerous.”

Rahami’s family lives in an apartment above First American Fried Chicken in Elizabeth, New Jersey, Mayor Chris Bollwage said. The family has a history of clashes with the community over the restaurant, which used to be open 24 hours a day,
— The Rahami family alleged discrimination and harassment in a lawsuit against the city and its police department in 2011, arguing that officials conspired against them with citations for allegedly violating a city ordinance on hours of operation.
— The suit alleged that police officers and city officials had said “the restaurant presented a danger to the community.” It also accused a neighboring business owner of saying, “Muslims make too much trouble in this country” and “Muslims don’t belong here.” The defendants, including police officers and city officials, denied the allegations.
— Bollwage said a 2012 ruling on the case favored the city, adding that the family’s restaurant was “disruptive in the city for many, many years.”

This malcontent never fit in (they never do), a loner, a deadbeat, unhappy with Western ways, dissatisfied of everything America stands for, an outsider, raged about American way, homophobic, a cultural malcontent; family had reservations too, they were schizophrenic, accused police of harassment, brought suit against the town, thought they were the object of discrimination. Please note that the the culprit had 7 brothers and sisters. Click here to learn more about the Rahmani family and their Jihadist view of America. Total estimated cost for the bombings etc is $100,000,000. Is Clinton going to cough up the money to pay for this.

This type of behavior is prevalent in the Muslim community. Contrary to outreach by Christians and Jews, the assimilation of Muslims with the zestful lives of the West is never going to happen. Fifteen hundred years of brainwashing, intimidation, infighting between themselves and some think there is hope that a cultural red line or glass ceiling will be penetrated. No way, ain’t gonna happen. Haven’t Americans noticed the demands of Muslims, demands that we, America, bow down to their culture rather than vice-versa. It must stop before it is too late.

The bottom line here is that these people were not Americans, but angry immigrants who were not happy in in the land of the Cowboy, blaming US for their failures We have seen these types in every community, money hungry, anti America, never to be culturally assimilated, accumulating money to be used for their retirement back in their home country. One may ask why did you come here in the first place? These people are interested in building America, they are interested in tearing it down.

France has the problem, we have the problem, New York has the problem, Saint Cloud has the problem.  Of course these incidents are always condemned, but that is like papering over the real problem. Muslims do not fit in, PERIOD. Donald Trump is the man to not hold back, but to do what should be done. And we all no what that is. And to reiterate, this Muslim malcontent had Jihad training in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He was interview about this, his answer, he was visiting relatives. Relatives, most relatives in these countries are Jihadists, suicide bomber types. Again, the FBI fell flat on their face.

Islam,  is the religion of Satan. This is a given, no matter how many spokesman defend the “religion of peace” it will never fly in America. Christianity, the Judeo-Christian ethic and Western civilization is anathema to Muslims. Their ways do not culturally fit into our society. The sooner we realize this, the better off we will be. Every predominantly Muslim country in the Middle East will be free of Christians by the next decade. Turkey, once the focal point of Eastern Christendom, Constantinople their Rome, has less than 170,000 Christians amongst 80,000,000 Muslims. Erdogan will see to it that those remaining will suffer pain by the day.

But we weigh in, one salient point needs description. The NBTP has nothing against Muslims who live peacefully in their own countries; there is no animosity here. For instance, Morocco, Tunisia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, for the most part are peaceful and law abiding. In fact, Saudi Arabia is a prime example where Islam, the Sunni version, predominates religious and social life. However, Christianity, no churches in Mecca or Medina, is forbidden.  This is due to the cultural class of Christianity and Islam. The government seeks the status quo going back 1500 years.

Muslim society goes about their ways without cultural conflict obeying their strict code of Islam for the most part without allowing Christian values to permeate their culture. The above examples provide an insight on the areas of conflict among society. The best way to prevent a continuation of flash points is to recognize that the Koran is not compatible with the Bible. Integration will never succeed when two religions clash, not only at the margins, but in the body of verses. So let it be said, let it be done, separation is the avenue toward peace, integration is the avenue toward revenge and conflict.

WE WILL NEVER FORGET WHO THE KILLERS WERE – WE WILL NEVER FORGET THE ON GOING DAMAGE DONE BY BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

WE WILL NEVER FORGET SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 – AN EQUAL TRAGEDY OCCURRED WITH THE ELECTION OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA IN 2008

Patriots will never forget 911, but for our politicians it is a long lost memory. Political correctness has tried to wash away the deep wound in America’s psyche. We bet that Barack Hussein Obama was gloating that infamous day listening to Reverend Wright (God Damn America) bobbing his head in agreement.

With the twin trade towers crumbling Obama most likely had a grin from ear to ear because in his mind it was God punishing the great Satan. At that time a revelation appeared to the anointed one which set in motion his plan to become America’s “ il Duce.”

Obama’s own words: “The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others,” Mr. Obama wrote. “Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent, is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular culture, religion, or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, and may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics. Most often, though, it grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.”  Obama’s lame excuse notwithstanding, poverty and ignorance had nothing to do with the Trade Tower bombing; this was Jihad, a religious war.  Muslims against Christianity and the Western values it promotes.

The past seven years have been just as devastating to the United States than twenty trade tower implosions. POTUS has violated the constitution with impunity thumbing his nose at those who question his authority; America is weak, we are a sitting duck for more 911’s. Mind you, with Republicans taking control of Congress nothing has changed. They have heeled like a dog taking orders from their master.

When they had a chance Boehner and McConnell became two of America’s most ineffective leaders. With the power to stop Obama in his tracks they acquiesced to his every move. The time for change is November 8, 2016. Time for Trump to lead the Nation.

 

God Bless America on this DAY THAT WILL LIVE IN INFAMY. A montage of eight images depicting, from top to bottom, the World Trade Center towers burning, the collapsed section of the Pentagon, the impact explosion in the south tower, a rescue worker standing in front of rubble of the collapsed towers, an excavator unearthing a smashed jet engine, three frames of video depicting airplane hitting the Pentagon.

For the Families of those who perished you are always in our hearts, you have our sincere sympathy, we empathize with you. Losing part of your life, one that cannot be replaced is a reminder of the dangerous times we live in. But take consolation in that we will not forget the pain you suffered that day

SALAFI – THE POLITICAL DEHUMANIZATION OF SOCIETY

[VIDEO] An Islamic Salafi Classroom in the UK

FROM MARKET SLANT 

Warning: (Click FOR VIDEO)Sensitive material. Violent intolerant concepts being taught to minors.

This is likely a Salafi teacher. Why that matters at the bottom as described by Nicholas Nassim Taleb

The first reaction of many people educated in the West after seeing something like the above is disbelief. That is the liberal side of you living in false hope there is no evil in the world. The side of you that believes in relativism and that we cannot know the absolute. It does not want to judge. It forgets that just because we cannot know absolute hate, does not mean it does not exist. To you my liberal friend, I say this. Hope and denial are different sides of the same coin.

The first reaction of many others in the West is anger and a desire to stamp out this atrocity. That is a conservative orthodox side of a person that thinks it has the right to correct that which it hates with more hate. That killing the person responsible for this will fix the problem. No, it will only fan the flames. And if it doesn’t and the crusader wins, what will be the cost in lives, lost culture and generations of healing.

I do not pretend to know the right answer. But we must acknowledge that evil exists and that even Ghandi had a point where he would take up arms. Everyone does.

Conversely we must know that while defending ourselves is at some point unavoidable in a cause we determine to be righteous, the line to which we are moved to cross in defense of innocent lives is not easily known.

Personally, I felt both feelings when viewing the above. The disbelief and the rage both were felt deeply.

  • Disbelief- “This  must be fake”- but I don’t believe so. Assume it is real
  • Rage- “This woman must be stopped at all cost”- on who’s authority do I claim the right to do so and define all cost

Ignorance and hate exist in the world. We are not advocating reciprocal hate against Muslims. We are deeply saddened that these children are being inculcated into a hateful black and white world before they can even reason. Then when they begin to function as rational human beings, they are slammed even more with pseudo reason. Christianity had its dark ages and may be headed in that direction again if the polarization of Islamic  youth  continues.

Nicholas Taleb on Fundamentalist “Religions”

A definition of Salafi as commonly understood is in order first.

Salafis are fundamentalists who believe in a return to the original ways of Islam. The word ‘Salafi’ comes from the Arabic phrase, ‘as-salaf as-saliheen’, which refers to the first three generations of Muslims (starting with the Companions of the Prophet), otherwise known as the Pious Predecessors.

And the main thrust of Taleb’s point addresses this misconception

FTA:The problem with the European Union is that the naive I.Y.I. (intellectuals yet idiots) bureaucrats and representatives of the talking “elites” (these fools who can’t find a coconut on Coconut island) are fooled by the label. They treat Salafism as just a religion –with its houses of “worship” — when in fact it is just an intolerant political system, which promotes (or allows) violence and refuses the institutions of the West –those that allow them to operate. -NNTaleb
